January 2022
Welcome Lilly Frazier

We would like to introduce our new Volunteer Coordinator Lilly Frazier to The Baltimore Station family.

Lilly joined the team just in time to ring in 2022 as our new Volunteer Coordinator. In this role, she will be the connection between the men we serve and the volunteers who make everything possible. Her responsibilities will include leading meal services and days of service, reaching out to prospective volunteers, collecting and managing donations, overseeing volunteers at fundraising events and working with groups to produce new and engaging activities for the men at The Station.
Baltimore born and raised, Lilly has spent the last two years working in housing and gaining a better understanding of the city and all its unique neighborhoods. She was first introduced to the nonprofit world while studying at Towson University for a degree in political science. Her excitement to build up her Baltimore community is what eventually brought her to The Station. Her commitment to people combined with strong communication skills is what will make her a great addition to our team! Lilly can be reached at or at 410-752-4454 x110.
Residents in the Kitchen
Unfortunately, with the increase of the Omicron variant, we had to suspend in person volunteer activities shortly before the Christmas holiday. We are so thankful to the Jewish Volunteer Connection and Church of the Nativity for dropping off the holiday meals they had planned to serve. We are also thankful to our residents who helped prepare meals and snacks during the holiday season to assist our kitchen staff. Supervised by our Assistant Clinical Director Paul Martin, residents helped with cleaning, chopping, cooking, baking and cleaning up. As Paul said, “This is great hands-on experience for our men. It’s teaching and reinforcing life skills they will need when they graduate from our program.”
Favorite Pastime Helps Resident Heal
For some, coloring is seen as a pastime for youngsters, but for others, it is a therapeutic activity. For one resident here at The Baltimore Station, it is his way to express his feelings, relieve stress and calm the mind.

Phillip C. has his designated table where he sits down and lays out his colored pencils, markers and multiple sheets to color. The other residents give him space and allow him the alone time he needs when coloring. He has passed his finished pieces to staff members throughout his time with us. Now volunteers have started to take notice of his wonderful works of art, so he’s been busy creating pieces for them.

The lives of many of our residents have been shattered and many feel they have lost their place in humanity”, said Executive Director John Friedel. “These expressive arts are what makes us all human.
Mission BBQ 1st Annual
National Day of Service

On January 10, residents and staff at both of our facilities were treated to lunch from Mission BBQ.

Volunteers from Mission BBQ restaurants throughout the region participated in their first annual National Day of Service by serving complimentary lunch to veteran’s organizations. We greatly appreciate Mission BBQ’s support and what they do year-round for our veterans and greater community.
